Please add BBcode for RTL in version 2.5 (General)

As addition because of my suggestion to set the writing direction for the wohle page in <html>. This is not necessary because the forum script does it by itself with the value of dir from the language file (linked example from the tamil language file and the line of the main template to place the value in).

Sorry, I did not understand your suggestion: are you suggesting to switch the entire forum to RTL direction?

As an Hebrew (RTL) writer I'm only aware of two scenarios in HTML:

(1) Switching the entire page to RTL using <html> or <body> tags.
(2) Switching specific blocks of text to RTL using <div>, <p>, <span>, or other tags.

method (2) is occasionally required by anyone that needs to insert RTL text into LTR page. It is a very common scenario. It can only be implemented as a BBcode feature.

Surely I wasn't asking to implement this feature for my own sake :-), anyone who uses RTL language can tell...
